The battle between NFL players and their fans has begun. The blue collar fans, those who pay overpriced tickets, are sending a huge message to the players. They are the same patriots who took Hillary down and now are going after the NFL.
Americans around this country are starting to protest NFL players who disrespect the flag by burning shirts and tickets. In one video, you can see Brendan Finn, a season ticket holder, burning the tickets.
“I can’t go anymore,” says Finn, “all the respectful NFL players who still respect the flag and our country.” He goes on, “I can’t pay and I can’t watch this happen.” He then explains how he is wearing a shirt that belonged to a cop he worked with who was shot dead during a robbery.
“There are thousands of cops just like him who gave their lives for this country, and these people sit down and protest against cops? I’m burning my tickets,” states Finn. “The end of an era, I’m sad to see it happen, but I’m sad to see what happened to America even more,” says Finn as the tickets burn.
And Finn isn’t the only one. The social media is filled with Americans who have had it enough. Another clip shows a Steelers fan, who is a veteran, burning his Steelers t-shirts while playing the national anthem and waving the American flag.

Robert L Williams, who is another Steelers fan, burned all his NFL gear. He said his great uncle’s “bones are at the bottom of Pearl Harbor.” He said, “We have morals in this country. We stand for this country. My great uncle’s bones are lying in the bottom of Pearl Harbor. For this country. For the flag. For your freedom to play in the NFL and to say whatever you want to say. But you do not disrespect the flag and the country and the Constitution… So watch this stuff burn.”
There are many other examples, like Veteran Jim Heaney, who also burned his NFL gear. Maybe the media is presenting these disrespectful players as they are doing something good, but the honest Americans aren’t falling for that crap.
Another clip on the social media shows Kansas City Chiefs fan saying he is “ashamed” to support his team, because of the disrespectful actions the players demonstrated. He says he will never pay another dime on NFL.
If the anthem protests continue NLF will go down because the most devoted people who are also season tickets holders are the working class and they can’t stand and watch as some spoiled players disrespect this great nation.
